The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fortune Cookie is a typically sweet, soulful story from the excellent Cathy Cassidy. There’s a surprise in store for the Tanberry sisters. Staying with their father in Australia, Honey discovered the existence of a half-brother they never knew they had. Impulsive as always, she wrote to the boy, and invited him to come and stay. Jake, nickname Cookie, is in trouble at home and uses the train ticket she sent to escape his problems. We see all the sisters through his eyes, and his presence helps bring about a reconciliation between Honey and Cherry at last. There’s a definite fairy tale ending to the series and the girls – happier, more tolerant, easier in themselves – deserve it. It will warm readers’ hearts. ~ Andrea Reece

***And all Cathy fans will love The Chocolate Box Secrets. It's a delicious scrapbook of fun, creative ideas from the Chocolate Box Girls.

Make your own vintage style top or try some of the recipes and there are some cool ideas to make your sleepovers really fun!

He's got four half-sisters that he never knew existed. When Jake's talent for trouble causes chaos at home, he runs away to meet his new family.
